Raised on Blues and Rock, grown up on R&B and Jazz, Justin Donovan embodies the American music catalog in a big way. With his unique 7 and 8 string "multi-string guitars" (created by Charlie Hunter) he plays guitar strings and bass strings simultaneously. Alongside his strong, soulful vocals he brings the ‘one man band’ concept to a new level.
Justin performs extensively throughout Colorado and surrounding areas as a soloist and as the leader of groups with variations of drummers, keyboardist, horn players and bass players when he uses standard 6-string guitar. In Colorado Justin can be seen at an array of different venues including Sullivan's Steak House, Dazzle Restaurant and Lounge, Appaloosa Grill, D'Vine Wine, Herb's Hideout, Teller's Taproom and The Glenn Bar and Grill. He also plays private parties and weddings and has worked as a side man for many wedding bands around Colorado and for Carnival Cruise Lines.
Justin can come in many different configurations and styles and, although he emphasizes his Soul, Blues, Jazz, Funk and Rock roots, he also performs in Pop, Country and Classical settings. A truly versatile musician, Justin can be configured to just about any size of group or setting to suit your event's or venue's needs.
